We are excited about FalconStor's evolution."
Additional Financial Highlights for the Second Quarter 2018
While our Non-GAAP Operating Income was $0.2 million for the quarter, we recorded a GAAP Net Loss for the three months ended June 30, 2018 of $1.0 million, as compared to a GAAP Net loss of $0.6 million for the same period of the previous year, in part as a result of the impact of new revenue recognition guidance, in addition to other non cash restructuring charges incurred in connection with our cost reduction efforts. Excluding the effects of stock-based compensation, restructuring costs and the effects of our Series A redeemable convertible preferred stock, we delivered a GAAP Net loss of $0.2 million, as compared to a GAAP Net loss of $0.5 million in the prior year period.
Overall, total revenue for the three months ended June 30, 2018 was $4.0 million as compared to $6.7 million in the prior year period. This decline in revenue was significantly impacted by our adoption of new revenue recognition accounting guidance on January 1, 2018 using the modified retrospective transition method, which resulted in a $1.2 million decrease in revenue.
Net cash provided by operations increased by $2.3 million to $0.7 million for the three months ended June 30, 2018, as compared to $1.6 million of net cash used by operations for the three months ended June 30, 2017.
We ended the quarter with $4.0 million of cash and cash equivalents, as compared to $1.0 million at December 31, 2017.
